Central Texas Wing CAF - South Texas Trip

I am In review mode for this summers activities so posting more photos from a few months back. In June our family headed south for a good friends wedding near Austin. Brennen and I dropped Candice off for some outlet mall shopping (air conditioned!) while we headed out into the warm sunshine to check out a local airport. We drove around the San Marcos, Texas airport until we found the Central Texas Wing of the Commemorative Air Force hangar. They have one COOL hangar! Big open hangar space and plenty of wooden beams with character. Equally eye catching is the variety of vintage aircraft on display. B-25, P-39, AT-6, Beech 18 and more! It was fun to run into a pilot from back in the Breckenridge Airshow days and catch up. If in the Austin/San Marcos area this is a great stop for the aviation enthusiast. Below is a series of photos highlighting the visit.
